Hello, I’m Clare.

I created this space as a retreat from the hurried city life in which I had unwittingly found myself. I was working in the corporate world and feeling, like so many of us, overwhelmed with information, obligations and battles for my attention.

Weekends were my opportunity to slow down, prioritise the people and things I loved most, and to reflect on the issues that were meaningful to me. I wanted to quieten the noise and rediscover beauty and wonder in the everyday.

In 2017, I left my corporate job and city life to hit the road and explore some other interests. Little did I know I would fall in love with the west coast of Ireland and then a man!

We got married under this beautiful tree in Tasmania and then moved back to the west coast of Ireland to live in a cottage by the sea where I now work as a writer and photographer.

This blog and Instagram continue to be my main creative homes to share stories of my new life in Ireland, and to continue exploring ideas around food, lifestyle, travel and connection. 

It’s also where I want celebrate people who are doing things differently. People who are guided by curiosity and wisdom more than what they are told they are supposed to do. People whose voices aren’t shouting to be heard but are the ones I believe we need to hear the most.

I'd love you to join me.
